A Giau MTF isn't the best option to use Giau, but I still like it and more Dolomites is always good, even if it could kill the action on stage 2.

I know the aim is to gradually expand it, but it's kind of funny to call it Adriatica Ionica at this early stage of its development when it doesn't travel any further down the coast than Trieste. It'd be like if Paris-Nice finished in Dijon.

It's a provisional (and partial) list, there will be also the Italian national team and some continental teams (the DS of Amore e Vita confirmed the participation during the last "Sui pedali magazine").
